HONG KONG -- Four pro-democracy figures linked to a now-dissolved fund for Hong Kong protesters have been arrested on allegations of colluding with foreign forces. They were released on bail around midnight Thursday.

Cultural scholar Hui Po-keung was apprehended Tuesday night at a Hong Kong airport, while barrister Margaret Ng, 74; Cardinal Joseph Zen, 90; and singer Denise Ho, 45, were taken in by national security police under China's national security law on Wednesday, police sources said.
